Petite carte de poche

Found this pocket map of the French and Belgium battle lines in Dad's cedar box of 'old war secrets'. The pencil sketch, annotated 'fire bay', is particularly evocative. The hand-writing is unclear but seems to indicate details of  a battalion transfer from one battalion, possibly 34th to another in May and June 1917 (author unknown).
